November 17th in Greece

By November 16, 2012

Follow me on:

November 17th is always a difficult day in Greece - commemorating the tragic date in 1973 when a number of protesting students at Athens' Polytechnic University were killed on orders from the government of "The Colonels". The deaths soon led to the end of the regime.

As in most years, it's a good idea for travelers to avoid Syntagma Square and to stay away from Embassy Row in Athens.
